Pictures Of Hollywood Kerry Washington And her Nigerian NFL Player Husband

It came as quite a pleasant surprise to me when I came across a rather cute Nigerian attired family picture of what was labelled Actress Kerry Washington with her husband and kids.

I have not been an avid follower of the “Scandal” actress who plays Olivia Pope so the discovery of not just her marital status, but also the identity of her spouse took me as much by suprise as it would many Nigerians who would hitherto have been unaware of these details.

Washimgton tied the knot with football player Nnamdi Asomugha, after dating for 1 year.

The 42 year-old Scandal actress and the 36 year old San Francisco 49ers cornerback got married on June 24 2013 in Blaine County, Idaho.

Kerry became one of the most buzzed about actresses of 2012 with her breakout role as Olivia Pope on Scandal and her turn as an enslaved woman in Django Unchained.

Nnamdi was signed to the 49ers and previously played for the Oakland Raiders for eight seasons and the Philadelphia Eagles for another two.

Both Kerry and Nnamdi are dedicated activists and philanthropists. He has participated in the Clinton Global Initiative every year since 2009.


The couple have a daughter and two sons.

Are Liam Payne And Naomi Campbell New Showbiz Couple?

Liam Payne and Naomi Campbell have reportedly been spotted enjoying a date night.

You’ve probably already heard the news that these two were flirting like nobody was watching over on Instagram last week.

Except everybody was watching because they have more than 23 million combined Insta followers… and now the whole world is desperate to know whether this is really happening.

Making absolutely no efforts to dampen the ‘are they, aren’t they?’ fire, apparently Liam, 25, and Naomi, 48, enjoyed an evening at London’s O2 Arena over the weekend where they watched Nigerian singer Davido perform.

A source told the Daily Star Online, “Liam and Naomi were keen to keep a low profile. They entered and exited the arena via the back door and were quickly whisked up to a VIP suite on Level 3.

Chris Brown Arrested On Rape Charges In Paris

R&B singer Chris Brown has been arrested in Paris on suspicion of rape

A 24-year-old woman is said to have accused Brown of raping her on the evening of January 15 at a hotel in the French capital.

Police officials said Brown and two other people are in custody in Paris today after a woman filed a rape complaint.

Brown was detained on Monday and is still in custody Tuesday while police study the complaint, they said.

One of the others detained is said to be Brown’s bodyguard, according to one of the police officials.

The French edition of Closer magazine reported that the woman had accused Brown of raping her at the Mandarin Oriental hotel.

She said she met Brown at Le Crysal, a nightclub close to the Champs Elysee, and then returned to his hotel with other women and a total of three men.

The alleged victim reportedly claimed that Brown had invited her to the hotel and then attacked her when they were left alone together.

The woman is also said to have accused Brown’s bodyguard and another friend of the singer of abusing her.

Reviewing Genevieve Nnaji’s Movie Lionheart

SO
I just finished watching the movie “Lionheart” on Netflix…..
I liked the cinematography and it was good to see KOK (Kanayo O Kanayo) acting in a movie again… Hopefully, this means he’s done with the filth that is Nigerian politics

But the movie did not live up to its expectation, I’m sorry. The storyline could have been better developed and frankly it seemed more of a showcase of Miss Nnaji than anything else. Sure the lady can act but I would have loved to see her character in different other situations rather than just lady boss in fine tight dresses.

lionh
Also I believe that KOK was desperately underused. He and Miss Onyeka were reduced to mere extras with lines and even Pete Edochie’s appearances were fleeting. It difficult to say if the title Lionheart was about the company, Pete Edochie’s character or Genevieve’s character.

Nkem Owoh was simply typecasted – as usual.

I also believed that the chemistry between Genevieve’s character and Hamza should have been given a chance to develop into a romance which we all love. Now that, would have been a perfect ending.

I however, couldn’t help but smile at the scene between Chief Obiaro and Alhaji.

In all, it was a gallant effort and something to fill the time on a Sunday evening.

Actor And Comedian Eddie Murphy Poses For A Holiday Photo With All 10 Of His Children.

EDDIE Murphy has posed with all TEN of his kids for the first time ever – including Mel B’s daughter Angel.

The Doctor Dolittle actor, 57, proudly stood surrounded by his sons and daughters, mum Lillian, fiancé Paige and her fashion designer mother.

Eddie holds his daughter Izzy, next to fiance Paige who is carrying newborn Max, and is surrounded by his daughters Bria, left, and Zola, right. On the bottom row is son Christian, mum Lillian, Angel, and Paige’s mum, while the top row is Miles, Shayne, Eric and Bella.

The never-before-seen family snap shows the range of ages of his children, from 30 to three-weeks-old.

It’s also the first time he’s been pictured with daughter Angel who he initially denied being a father to when Mel B announced she was pregnant.

Others featured in the family photo include Eddie and Paige’s youngest children Izzy, two, and three-week-old Max.

The actor shares five children with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy, including daughters Bria, 29, Shayne Audra, 23, Zola Ivy, 19, Bella Zahra, 16, and son Miles Mitchell, 26.

His eldest child Eric, 30, was with then girlfriend Paulette McNeely, followed by his 29-year-old son Christian whose mum is Tamara Hood.

The actor – thought to be worth £60million – met model Paige in 2012.

They got engaged in September just before the birth of their second child Max together.

This Christmas Eddie has been spending time with the daughter he shares with Spice Girl Mel.

They’ve been bonding while Mel has been promoting her memoir, Brutally Honest, which tells how she was left with just £800 after her ‘abusive’ ex Stephen Belafonte seized control of her £80m fortune.

Mel says daughter Angel now spends weekends with Eddie and is getting to know him.

Who Are Music’s 5 Highest Paid Females?

Back in 2015, when Katy Perry appeared on the cover of Forbes after earning $135 million in a single year, she knew she’d secured her place in the pop star firmament—and wouldn’t ever have to worry about fading into oblivion. “I don’t feel like my career is a ticking time bomb,” she said. “I don’t feel like I’ll always have to be feeding the meter of show business. I got my spot, yo.”

Three years later, Perry has proved herself right: She’s the highest-paid woman in music, pulling in $83 million pretax during our scoring period. One of the hardest-working names on the list, Perry played 80 dates of her Witness: The Tour in Forbes‘ June-to-June timeframe, grossing over $1 million per night. She also managed to find time to serve as a judge on ABC’s American Idol reboot, reportedly earning north of $20 million for her troubles.

Taylor Swift ranks second with $80 million. The superstar songstress briefly disappeared from social media last year before roaring back with the launch of new album Reputation, which sold two million copies worldwide in its opening week. The only reason she didn’t claim the top spot on this list? Most of her Reputation Stadium Tour dates fell just outside this year’s scoring period.

Beyoncé rounds out the top three, pulling in $60 million. After she and husband Jay-Z welcomed twins Rumi and Sir to the family in June 2017, Queen Bey had a quiet year, by her standards, until delivering a groundbreaking performance at Coachella this spring and dropping a joint album with Jay-Z in June. Much of this summer’s On The Run II, their second stadium tour together, will be reflected in our next scoring period—boosted by an inevitable deluge of new moneymaking opportunities.

“I’m never satisfied,” she once told Forbes. “I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry.”

Of course, making music isn’t the only way these musicians are making bank. Lady Gaga (No. 5, $50 million) added “movie star” to her résumé this year, thanks to a critically acclaimed turn in A Star Is Born alongside Bradley Cooper. Rihanna (No. 7, $37.5 million) is cashing in on Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie, and although she hasn’t been on tour since 2016, Rihanna stays in the public eye with starring roles in films like Ocean’s 8.

There were plenty of female musicians who had lucrative years but didn’t quite make the list. Among them: Ariana Grande, Mariah Carey, Selena Gomez, Madonna, Halsey and Janet Jackson, all of whom tallied double-digit millions. They’ll look to crack the top 10 next year.

“That’s the best thing about being a musician,” said Halsey. “You get to constantly show the world how you’ve changed and how you’ve grown. And you get to say, ‘Hey, look at me, look at how much better I am now than I used to be.'”

A Word Of Advice To Today’s Young Celebrities And Pop Stars – By Tunde Alabi- Hundeyin

I saw this post on the facebook wall of Tunde Alabi-Hundeyi, whom I call Uncle T, a former senior colleague from my days at Ogun State Television (OGTV) Abeokuta, Nigeria – and I knew immidiately it had to appear on my Guest Bloggers’ segment.

It is Uncle T, saying out loud what many of us are thinking about our young stars and celebrities today, whose main preoccupation seems to be the acquisition of – or the opportunity to have ridden in a private jet, the champagne lifestyle with as much foreign cash and women as possible.

While many of the images we see might be simple PR stunts and photo ops, these stars need to remember that many youngsters look up to them as some kind of role model and unfortunately, see their lifestyles as one to emulate.

It also gives the wrong imppresdion to up and coming artistes who might wrongly assume that the jet and champagne lifestyle is the reward of every artiste. The truth couldn’t be any further from this because not every artiste is going to have the success of Davido or Wizkid – who are still in the hey days of their carreer.

The next 20 years will determine if they are true evergreens.

Read Tunde’s article:

Have you noticed ?

All these young music stars now competing on who can best pose in a private jet with a glass of wine in hand and legs thrown out like they own the world.

Fake. Fake.

Non and I mean non of you has earned in your entire career enough to buy 1/4 of the cost of the engine of a private jet.

What you should concentrate on now is how to invest. Eg in top of the line studios, concert arenas and hospitality, real estate etc

You should also pay attention to charity and giving back to society.

How many times you seen someone like FEMI KUTI pose in a private jet. His investment in Shrine is yielding global dividend now.

Same with his father Fela. Obey, Decross etc.

Stardom just like sports celebrity doesn’t last forever.

Sunny Ade has the longest career in music at the top in Nigeria today but can you remember the thousands that have been forgotten. Yet they too had all those international record deals and concerts.

The images you should also use to inspire your generation should be different .

What you give back to the society also has a spiritual payday.

A word is enough for the …..
